Washington Redskins
Chicago Bears
FedEX Field | Sunday, Oct. 20 | 1 PM EST (FOX)

Chicago Bears

    1. Jay Cutler
    2. Jay
    3. PASS YDS339
    4. PASS TD3
    5. INT1
    6. RUSH YDS15
    7. RUSH TD0

    Cutler missed some throws against the Giants, but his owners are happy. This matchup is too good to pass up, too.

    1. Matt Forte
    2. Matt
    3. RUSH YDS117
    4. RUSH TD1
    5. REC YDS45
    6. REC TD0

    With Forte's huge presence in the passing game, it's nearly impossible for him to go for fewer than 100 total yards. He's in for a monster day in Washington.

    1. Brandon Marshall
    2. Brandon
    3. REC YDS122
    4. REC TD1

    Marshall got back on track against the Giants, catching nine passes for 87 yards and two TDs. Another huge game is in his future.

    1. Alshon Jeffery
    2. Alshon
    3. REC YDS86
    4. REC TD1

    Jeffery was quiet last week as Cutler took care of Brandon Marshall. Know that when you start him, there could be weeks like that.

    1. Martellus Bennett
    2. Martellus
    3. REC YDS60
    4. REC TD1

    Bennett caught six of his seven targets last week for 68 yards. Washington allows 9.4 fantasy points per game to tight ends.

    1. Robbie Gould
    2. Robbie
    3. PAT4
    4. FG1

    Gould made both of his field goal attempts last week, including a 52-yarder that gave the Bears a six-point lead in the fourth quarter. He's 10-for-10 on the year.

    1. Chicago Bears
    2. PTS ALLOWED27
    3. SACKS1
    4. INT2
    5. TD0

    This unit is completely decimated by injury and dependent on takeaways to get stops. They generate those takeaways with remarkable efficiency, but it makes for an unreliable defense.

Washington Redskins

    1. Robert Griffin III
    2. Robert
      Griffin III
    3. PASS YDS295
    4. PASS TD1
    5. INT2
    6. RUSH YDS45
    7. RUSH TD0

    Griffin struggled to get anything going against the Cowboys, but this is a solid matchup. The Bears have allowed 21.6 fantasy points per game to quarterbacks.

    1. Alfred Morris
    2. Alfred
    3. RUSH YDS108
    4. RUSH TD2
    5. REC YDS6
    6. REC TD0

    Morris converted 16 carries into 81 yards and a touchdown, and continues to chug right along despite the sputtering Washington offense.

    1. Pierre Garcon
    2. Pierre
    3. REC YDS103
    4. REC TD1

    Garcon caught six passes for 69 yards last week, but we saw in that game why I have him as a top-10 receiver the rest of the way. He had 15 targets. Expect that to continue.

    1. Santana Moss
    2. Santana
    3. REC YDS58
    4. REC TD0

    Moss got just three targets last week and appears to be the fifth option, at best, in this offense.

    1. Leonard Hankerson
    2. Leonard
    3. REC YDS42
    4. REC TD0

    Any receiver against the Bears could be worth starting in fantasy leagues, but it's too hard to bet on Hankerson.

    1. Jordan Reed
    2. Jordan
    3. REC YDS78
    4. REC TD0

    Reed is a sneaky option for the next few weeks. He has at least six targets in three of his four games this year, and seems to be increasing his role in the offense.

    1. Kai Forbath
    2. Kai
    3. PAT3
    4. FG2

    Forbath went 3-for-4 on field goals last week, his first game back from injury.

    1. Washington Redskins
    2. PTS ALLOWED31
    3. SACKS0
    4. INT1
    5. TD0

    I wouldn't read too much into Washington's performace against Dallas. Game flow dictated that more than anything. You don't want to have anything to do with this defense. It's not facing the Jay Cutler of old.
